The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

    Summer Term is upon us and we are all getting to grips with our new learning routines.  Remote Learning is a new challenge for all of us and quite a learning curve for everyone.

    A big thank you to all of those students who have been emailing me their learning and updating me on how they are getting on.  Keeping in touch is really important, and I am only an email away.  Please keep emailing me your learning and let me know if you need help in any way.  I will also be keeping in touch with phone calls this term, but I can also give your parents and carers a call if you need to talk through anything.

    Our English this term will focus on GPS skills, especially high-level punctuation and spelling patterns. You will be sent weekly spelling words to learn and you can email through your test scores each week.  We will be using video and pictures to inspire our writing, as well as introducing the novel ‘Wonder’ by R.J Palacio (you had an extract from this in our first learning pack). Writing will include newspaper articles, diary entries, letters (both formal and informal) and information texts. I’m looking forward to reading your writing – make sure you email me your completed work for feedback.

    In Maths, year 6 will initially be focusing on ratio and proportion before moving on to problem solving activities, particularly problem involving units of measure and money.  We will also be looking at dividing fractions and algebra.  Year 5 will be starting with decimal numbers before moving on to multiplying fractions. Both year groups will be revisiting square and cube numbers.  Our remote learning activities will be a combination of online activities and worksheets.  I will send Big Maths for you to complete each week and will record your Beat It scores.  You can also access Times Tables Rock Stars (there is now a weekly tournament against Aspen Class) and SumDog. Please let me know if you need your login details either of these.

    Our afternoon activities will be a mixture of Art, D.T, Science, R.E, P.S.H.E, History, Geography and Music activities.  Our overall question for Terms 5 and 6 is “What’s my Journey” and many of your activities will be based on this question. Our Term 5 question for R.E is “Is it better to express your religion in arts and architecture or in charity and generosity?” and in Science we will be exploring Light as our main topic.

    It is fantastic to hear that so many of you have been out riding bikes and going for walks with your families.  It’s important to keep active and both Joe Wicks and Cosmic Kids Yoga are great ways to get some daily exercise.

    Remember to keep emailing your work through for feedback on oaks@villageacademy.co.uk or email me just to have a chat.

    Take care and stay safe.
